Five Ways to Kickstart your Big Data Project
On October 22nd we recorded a 45 minute webinar on what makes and breaks big data projects.
We’re making this webinar available to anyone interested in why some big data projects work and others are complete failures:
- No, it’s not magic pixie dust; how to set reasonable expectations
- Where’s my data? Unexpected barriers to getting the data you need
- Prototyping in Amazon’s cloud versus sucking up to the ops team
- It’s not about build vs. buy; what’s the right mix of open source and commercial solutions
- You won’t be able to hire the big data guru you think you need, and why that’s OK
These five points distill down what we’ve learned over the past seven years in using Hadoop and other big data tools to solve problems in data processing, analytics and search.
